a tweet so the u.k. is afraid i'll come back with the skills i have gained the same man appears in a video with several others calling on brothers in the west to join their cause we have brothers from bangladesh from iraq from combo australia uki nothing has gathered us except to make a lot of the high us oh my goodness. i know how you feel and. if you are depressed it reaches out to sister stool in the united states in april and nineteen year old nurse was detained at denver international airport she was allegedly on her way to syria to marry an isis fighter enjoined extremist organization to as reported a system in any manner her facebook page suggested that her profession was a slave of this latest recruitment in western countries experts say is unprecedented german intelligence claimed that more than two thousand europeans have joined the jihad in syria and iraq including at least three hundred twenty
germans american reporter richard angle who was kidnapped and released in syria two years ago says that up to seventy americans are also involved and with jihad is openly saying they could bring their terror skills home europe and the united states have reason to be on high alert a recent shooting at the brussels jewish museum is an ample example of jihad may be on its way to europe investigators claim the gunman joined isis in january and the recent tightening of security for u.s. bound flights suggests washington is becoming aware that isis terrorism is no longer a story from somewhere overseas it is real and could soon be leaving trails of destruction in its own backyard. well as they push further into syria and iraq the jihadists are gaining more than just their land and manpower they've also seized vital resources that could help fuel the military campaign isis has sole ready wrested control of several large oil fields in syria from rival rebel factions that
jihadists are now battling with iraqi troops in a bid to seize the massive all refineries in the north of that country and one analyst told us that isis could even start exporting the black gold but we should not rule out the possibility that these religious extremists can get this oil to the market and receive funding in return isis is very well funded the were able to obtain and apparently ran away with tens of millions of dollars for those recent advances they've made in iraq in neighboring syria they were in a backdoor alliance with the united states of america and its north atlantic allies against the master based regime their president all sought and that not only brought them recognition and influence brought them a certain amount of funding. here and growing islamification in austria seeing campaigners there push to ban the burka right wingers want women to be stopped from
wearing full face veils in public art and tells you why. and there's plenty of toxic substances to be found in mexico city but one thing police didn't expect to find was a load of radioactive material on line we'll tell you how it probably got the. next homes in southeast london are being swamped by the stench inside of an ever growing mountain of rubbish which after three years of crete now stands four stories tall attempts to get the authorities to deal with the rat infested trash monstrosity have been in vain r.t. so if earth has more. and he's not the only one around here saying that after a waste disposal company allowed this rubbish to pile up now estimated to stand around forty feet and how long he been living with the neighbor. for years he's.
there what for was a take on. he would plastic. was a business plan and for as you can. work it's not just residents who are upset since december two thousand and eleven the london fire brigade have sent out save a six hundred fifty fire engines to twenty three separate fires here racking up more than six hundred fifty thousand pounds worth of resources the environment agency recently asked the high court to find a company in contempt of court after countless missed deadlines and injunctions to meet the waste the judge they dismissed the action they it's not immediately clear why understandably the company weren't keen to talk. you think the way the residents here being treated by a company is further. or they did release a statement saying without a cash injection or agreement from the environment agency to allow the company to
generate further income we simply cannot afford to make substantial disposals the legal fees and could buy the company as a result of the court proceedings have drained the company's resources this money could have been put to better use by making disposals from the site what's happened here is over a number of years you've had various firms all changing their name and saying there's different firms they've been operating under a permit from the environment agency bottom line people are supposed to police this but no one has taken decisive in force what action will this is meant that the residents that live here instead of being able to enjoy the comfort of their own homes are left in the middle of summer that deal with the lies and the dust and this from mel that comes from that massive pile of rubbish and quite frankly that stinks. reporting for us. and it's so quickly around some other world headlines
for you now eleven people are feared dead after a plane taking them for a parachute jump crashed in southern poland the aircraft went down soon after takeoff and caught fire as it crashed into a local village only one person survived and is now being treated in hospital the cause of the incident is they were being investigated. while in egypt a muslim brotherhood leader mohamed badie and thirty six of his supporters have been given life sentences is for inciting violence following the ousting of islamist president mohammed morsi bardi had already been given to death sentences in earlier hearings presidencies he has vowed to wipe out the organization. severe rains of battered provinces across china leaving two people dead in the country's southwest the deluge also lashed the north causing traffic chaos and leaving streets underwater hail also lashed a number of districts and it's not over more terentia downpours are expected this
time in the east of the country. next the formula one grand prix is back in russia after a hundred years of nothing and i'm quite a fan i have to admit so i headed down to the new racetrack in the olympic resort town of sochi to see if everything is up to speed. the race is on for the southern resort of sochi the bids to transform itself from a limper coast into the venue for this year's russian drum. this is organizers hope it will look for now though the reality is quite different the main grandstand still under construction and the track still being late but the saudi team are confident their circuit will be both on time and world class is going to be fine i think most most f one circuits are similar in the sense of very very kind of last minute delivery i think is going to be quite challenging for a lot of drivers we have a couple of very interesting turns here which i think would be challenging to.
show some strengths of the drivers in a different way has not been easy for the organizers who are tasked with constructing a track that could weave its way intricately through sort she's a limping village and at high speed. so to make that happen they drafted in one of the best in the business german track guru hand until care who came up with this design and the early feedbacks to be believed seems a tilt didn't disappoint behind me you'll see the fast this part of the course just imagine twenty two drivers racing down here at three hundred twenty kilometers an hour their top speed and then they break sharply for this turn to the tightest part of the course just thirty metres from side to side just imagine the bottleneck in the potential problems they all try to squeeze through here. that was battled through here they pick up speed up towards three hundred kilometers an hour if they sweep their way around this majestic picturesque bend take them around battle plaza
and back into the more recognizable surroundings of the olympic village we took the chance to test out the track ourselves but we were the only ones the formula one road show served as a test drive for the big event while also giving russians a tantalizing taste of big. glitz and the glamour that lie ahead with the final layer of the trunk to be laid in august it seems that for organizes the finish line is literally in sight the mine will be the case in the future therefore in chief bernie ecclestone keen on turning the russian groom into a night race does what mr ecclestone sincerely wants this is a beautiful idea the front of this year race starts at three pm and it will be a race but for the next years i'm sure that the one year of such a grand prix will be of the late race nine today though it's unlikely to matter too much to the officials in sochi he won the bid to make the city a global sporting mecca but no this is one race that's only just begun reporting
from sochi this is neil harvey farty. do stay with us here on international up next for you a tight knit community of people living in tents in the u.s. struggling to keep shelter above their heads and if you're watching as in the u.k. something slightly different sputnik with george galloway join. have you ever heard the expression pleasantly surprised or that is how i felt when i heard that the supreme court of the united states had ruled that digital information on cell phones of rest of people cannot be seized without a warrant finally the american people catch a break in a court decision this ruling is linked to the two cases in which the police used information on a suspect telephone to press for further charges against them i think that's the most important aspect of this decision is the press that it sets the court said
that just because a cell phone is in a suspects hand it does not make the information on it any less worthy of protection for which the founding fathers fought so could we extend this to say something like just because i have a telephone or computer that doesn't make the information on them unworthy of protection from the n.s.a. or the privacy invaders the thing is that the supreme court to see. is a good start but the police using your cell phone against you upon arrest is just the tip of the privacy destruction iceberg if the members of the highest court in land really do feel that the founding fathers fought to protect our privacy then they have a lot of paperwork and court decisions ahead of them for stuart but that's just my opinion. thanks rather terrorism the nature of terrorism is becoming increasingly internationalized a local governments which may be the case yeah in afghanistan have very limited and military tell that increasingly globalized spread one how do you really strike
a balance here and the father has been helped by not fighting drugs he was living in the plot stuff if we all start for fighting proxy rather than a lot of time when there would be peace if you tried to help them but it definitely . can become an example of this but success. on the lake would like to do jersey usa what was going on in this town is really unique in that there's a major what we call gentrification one group of people is moving into the town
and getting the lion's share of the housing and what it is is this new community is going in there they're buying up the homes but they're buying it up with the recycled taxpayer dollars see the ten it belongs to this group but also the landlord belongs to this group also so. the welfare money that goes to a pay for their apartment goes back to the landlord in a same group so that money stays within their community and it's just recycle and so what what's happening here is they're buying up the rest of the community with tax taxpayer dollars and so basically what it is is the person living in a home is paying taxes he's paying for his home to be bought up by this new group. this is you know it's just not right it's just wrong and the the politicians are allowing it because the new population has a voting bloc and they vote as one.
